Our main aim in providing our property management services is to give our landlords peace of mind with the knowledge that their property is in safe hands. However, there are a number of other benefits to using our property management services which we will explore further in this article.
1. Avoiding Stressful & Time Consuming Tasks
Being a landlord can be fraught with stressful and time consuming tasks especially if you have multiple properties in your portfolio. This may include:
collecting and protecting the deposit and rent
dealing with complaints
arranging maintenance & repairs
carrying out inspections
But, by hiring Matthews as your property management company in Birmingham, we can alleviate that stress for you, leaving you to enjoy your rental income.
2. Gaining Access to High Quality Tenants
By using this estate agents in Birmingham as your property management company, you gain access to high quality tenants. Matthews hire an independent, class leading, tenant screening service that conducts:
right to rent checks
reference checks from employers and previous landlords
These checks are essential to ensure that you are complying with the law and to reduce the possibility of any late rent payments or arrears.
3. Reliable Maintenance & Repairs
When letting out their property, landlords are legally required to ensure that certain aspects of the property are functional and in good working condition to make it a safe place for a tenant to live. Failure to do so could result in quite severe legal penalties.
However, while operating as an estate agents in Birmingham, we have had the pleasure of working with many reputable tradesmen and women that offer quality services at a very reasonable price. By providing access to these personnel, any repairs or maintenance issues that arise during the tenancy can be dealt with quickly, whilst making certain that tenants remain content.
4. Avoid Legal Hassles and Penalties The UK government is constantly introducing new legislation that landlords must comply with in order to avoid any legal hassles or penalties. By hiring an estate agents in Birmingham with over twenty years experience in the industry, we aim to ensure that all aspects, whether it be pre-tenancy, during the tenancy or post-tenancy, are complicit with UK law. As the legal landscape for landlords is constantly changing, our property management services in this regard would benefit both seasoned and new landlords to avoid any costly penalties.
5. Avoid Uncomfortable Situations With Tenants
One of the benefits of hiring a property management company in Birmingham that often gets overlooked, is the ability to avoid any uncomfortable situations with your tenants. This is achieved by creating and maintaining a professional distance between the tenants and landlord, and allowing the property management company to oversee the day to day operations of the property.
There may be uncomfortable circumstances where, for example, a tenant with children has fallen several months behind on their rent payments. In this instance, the tenant is costing the landlord a very significant amount of money, however, the landlord feels too uncomfortable about personally delivering the eviction notice. However, a property management company will take care of those difficult situations so that the landlord can maximise the return on their investment.
We would like to once again thank Estate Innovation for their nomination as a top property management company in Birmingham in their recent article. Such recognition means the world to us and we will strive to maintain the quality of service that resulted in this nomination.
